Campus Printing

The Campus Printing service allows you to print from your computer or mobile phone to printers across campus. Send the file to the printer, then release the job at the printer by tapping your CMU ID. Central print release stations are available in computer labs, university libraries, some resident halls and public areas across campus. Some locations offer color printing, special paper sizes, scanning and copying.

All students, faculty and staff are allotted a $40/semester print quota, which is associated with your CMU ID and debited when you release a print job at a campus printer. To purchase additional print quota dollars, visit the HUB and request Plaid Cash. Sponsored guests may purchase a Plaid Cash card for printing.

Computing Services also consults with departments to add departmental printers to the central print service.
